Trek Rail 9.8 GX is a long-travel carbon 29er electric mountain bike that rips just as hard as Trek's beefiest rigs - and helps power you right back up the mountain.

With a SRAM GX build and components with solid specs, you'll find both the best Trek MTB riding experience and the best in Bosch motor and controller tech.

This bike comes in three colors: Gloss Purple Phaze/Matte Raw Carbon, Solid Charcoal/Radioactive Orange and Solid Charcoal to Root Beer Ano Decal.

 

Why you'll love it

  • The new, better-than-ever Bosch motor is smaller, lighter, and more efficient. It feels more natural while you’re pedaling, and has less drag when you’re not
  • The full-color Kiox controller displays ride info, connects with your Bluetooth® enabled devices, and has a built-in theft prevention feature
  • RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
  • Made with the same exclusive frame tech as Remedy and Slash, like Mino Link adjustable geometry, a Straight Shot down tube for extra stiffness, and Active Braking Pivot (ABP)
  • Trek's Removable Integrated Battery (RIB) system looks great and is super user-friendly: it fully hides the battery in the frame for protection, makes it easy remove the battery without tools and lets you mount a water bottle cage
  • Smaller frames (S) have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube

 

It's right for you if...

You’re looking for a long-travel carbon e-MTB with high-performance parts. You crave the responsiveness of carbon, the plush feel of high-end suspension, and would rather get all the good stuff now than have to upgrade down the line.

The tech you get

An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame that fully encases a 625Wh battery, a super responsive RockShox ZEB Select+ fork with extra-burly 38mm stanchions and loads of adjustability, a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock with an updated Thru Shaft damper, a Bosch Performance Line CX 250W motor that assists up to 20 mph, and a Kiox controller. A SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with an extra-low 52-tooth climbing gear, downhill-rated 4-piston brakes for unflinching descents, and Bontrager Line Comp 30 29er wheels with robust SE5 Team Issue tires that come completely tubeless ready, including sealant.
